Gynecology Q & A

Why are annual gynecologic exams important for your health?

You may schedule gynecologic exams when you need birth control or have a problem like a yeast infection, but if you skip routine exams, you’re missing out on one of the best ways to protect your health. Annual gynecologic exams, or women’s wellness exams, are important because they focus on preventing disease.

Many pelvic diseases develop gradually, so they don’t cause symptoms until they’re well established and have started to damage your health. When you schedule regular pelvic exams, your doctor at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine can detect subtle changes in your body and blood work that indicate potential health problems. Then you can receive treatment that helps prevent that change from becoming a serious problem.

What services are included in gynecologic care?

The team at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine provide the full range of gynecologic care that women need to stay healthy at every stage of life. In addition to routine pelvic and breast examinations, their diverse services include:

  • Family planning and birth control
  • Pap test
  • STD testing
  • HPV testing and immunization
  • Complete menopause care
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Genetic testing
  • Screening for chronic disease
  • Treatment of incontinence and pelvic floor disorders
  • gynecologic surgery, including minimally-invasive and robotic surgery
  • Advanced diagnostic techniques for disorders such as endometriosis

When should you seek medical help for gynecologic problems?

The team at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine encourage you to call anytime you have a concern about your health. However, please be sure to schedule an appointment if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse
  • Vaginal itching, burning, swelling, or soreness
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Burning during urination

These symptoms develop from many possible gynecologic issues, some of which need early treatment to prevent complications. For example, two causes of pelvic pain -- uterine fibroids and endometriosis -- can result in scarring and infertility.

Gynecologic services at Rosh Maternal & Fetal Medicine include providing comprehensive diagnosis and therapy for many conditions in-house. As a result, you can get quick answers and timely treatment when you visit your local Manhattan OBGYN.
